What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

St. Patrick's Intervention

It's bad enough that so many St. Patrick's cakes are shaped like beer, bakers:


Do you have to actually be drunk while decorating them, too?

*hic* "I hash an eye-shing bag. WHEEEEEE!!"


"yerp. LOOKS GOOD."


"I like to make 'em like a chorus line of cacta... cactses.. cactusesesess... cacti."


"Guys. Guys. Guys. Check it.

"I put lil' HATS on this cake's BOOBS."


And to the baker who was so proud of this penmanship:

They actually asked for "Happy St. Patrick's Day."



Thanks to Gina L., Gina M., Doug G., Dara M., Holly F., & Shannon M. for my new favorite holiday abbreviation. HAPPY PAPRACK TO ALL!

Wedding Missed Marks, Vol #637

Bethany wanted her wedding cake to be a flight of fancy:


...but instead, we think her baker just winged it:


Melissa, on the other hand, envisioned something with a little more... trunk space:



But ended up with something barking mad:

"Now, make like a tree... and TRY TO LOOK LIKE A TREE."


Muna wisely went with something simple, sleek, and classic:

She figured it'd be much harder to mess this up.

And she was right!


Yes, you might say her baker really rose to the occasion:

...of totally wrecking it up.


Thanks to Bethany M., Melissa G., & Muna J. for taking her lumps and living to tell the tale.
